Kamloops United Church is a member organization of Changing the Face of Poverty and we are excited to share the anti-stigma video “Don’t Fight the Poor, Fight Poverty”. https://youtu.be/kq-QFiybJew
This video shares the stories of community members with lived and living experiences of poverty. These are the stories of our community members, our neighbours.
Poverty is a systemic issue; members of our community are impacted by poverty each day. No one should have to carry the burden of stigma or the weight of shame. People have a right to a dignified path out of poverty. Please visit https://www.kamloopschangingthefaceofpoverty.com/call-to-action to learn more about ending stigma today.
Kamloops Changing the Face of Poverty thanks the City of Kamloops and United Way Thompson Nicola Cariboo for their support with this work, and the CFP member organizations for their contributions. We are grateful to the individuals who shared their stories in this video. Your stories and messages need to be heard, they are at the heart of why this work matters, and why we need to take action today.
